World Premiere Clip of Justin Bieber’s Latest Video and Hit Single, “Boyfriend,”


Plus a Special Surprise Announcement



Musical Guest The Wanted Perform with Team Blake



UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – April 13, 2012 – In a surprising twist, the coaches must dismiss one artist from each of their teams in the Quarterfinals of “The Voice” Performance shows. Beginning Monday, April 16, LIVE on NBC with Teams Blake and Christina, the four remaining artists on each team will fight for survival and sing like it’s their last opportunity. Coaches Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton must then decide who among the artists on their respective teams will be dismissed in a heart-pounding instant elimination. Teams Adam and CeeLo will be put through the same test the following week as they take the stage for the Quarterfinals.


As previously announced, Blake and Christina will also perform alongside the four artists on their respective teams, and coach Adam Levine joins his band, Maroon 5, in a premiere performance of “Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa. “Payphone is the first single off the band’s upcoming fourth album, “Overexposed.”


On “The Voice” Elimination Show Tuesday, April 17 (9-10 p.m. ET), the competition comes to an end for two more artists. In the third of six Elimination Shows, the artist who receives the most viewer votes on Teams Blake and Christina from the previous night’s Quarterfinal Performance Show, will be saved and guaranteed a spot in the Semifinals. Meanwhile, the bottom two artists on both teams must each perform an additional last chance song. Coaches Christina and Blake will then be put on the spot to save one more member of their team to advance into the Semifinals, thereby eliminating the other artist. By night’s end, Blake and Christina will each have their top two artists.


In a special world premiere, “Bieber fever” hits “The Voice” as NBC presents a debut clip from Justin Bieber’s new video and latest hit single, “Boyfriend.” The teen icon and music ingénue also promises a very special surprise for all “Believers.”


British pop-vocal sensation, The Wanted, continue to take the world by storm as they step onto “The Voice” stage to perform. Their self-titled US debut EP will be available everywhere April 24th. This week, the success of their first single, “Glad You Came,” established The Wanted as the first boy band to hit #1 on Mainstream Top 40 since 1997. Accompanying them will be the artists from Team Blake.

"The Voice" is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named “The Voice” – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.


“The Voice” is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.




  • Caren

    Erin, Jordis, Ashley and Chris

  • Noelle

    Hopefully RaeLynn gets eliminated. I really don’t know how she’s still there. As for the other Team Blake artist, it will probably be Jordis Unga since she’s not very popular. For Christina, obviously Chris and Ashley are probably going home.

  • AniMatsuri

    Bogus! Seems they are taking it out of the publics hands before they even have a chance to vote.

  • FowlScat

    show sucks, talent sucks, xtinas plastic chest is unwatchable. This show is heading for the cesspool sooner than later. I do however look forward to the UK version on Saturdays. Night and day difference.

  • Miko

    The Voice UK is way better. #TeamJessieJ #TeamWill.I.Am I can’t stand Danny though.
    Hopefully these people below will get eliminated soon.

    RaeLynn – Cute but she needs more experience.
    Jordis Unga – I don’t feel her stage presence anymore since the Blind Auditions.

    Jesse Campbell – I was expecting more when he sang What a Wonderful Life.
    Lindsey Pavao – She butchered the song Somebody I Used to Know

    What a shocking development. It may take me a few days to pick my jaw up off the floor.

  • Joseph

    Having fewer episodes where we hear the singers and less time for them to develop is not a good thing ,
    There is a reason that The Voice numbers are falling like a rock and it is a format that does not allow an audience to hear what the contestants can actually do over multiple songs. I do understand this is easier on the coaches since it means they need to devout less time to the show but it not a positive thing if The Voice wants to over take American Idol.
